RARE Antique Sampler-Galerie de Famille Very unusual family tree sampler from Provence.
Sample was created in a rare black color way, with some of the older thread color having fading over time.
This large cross stitched piece begins with the births of a couple in 1783 and 1785 then traces the family’s history through 1895.
Making it more interesting is the change in stitch and thread as the lineage progresses through time.
Border is a detailed leaf and vine pattern and the piece is finished with Jesus-Marie-Joseph.
Backing is in sturdy condition with light spotting at the top where the piece was rolled. Easily framable.
A one of a kind find. 24.5″ t and w
